it would mean for trade and tourism, what it would mean for developing technology and talent for future generations of israeli and palestinian children. imagine israel and its neighbors as an economic powerhouse in the region. it is long past time that the people of this great and ancient part of the world became known for what they can create and not for the conflicts they perpetuate. it is long past time that jerusalem, the crucible of the world's three great monotheistic religions become known not as the subject of constant struggle, but as the golden city of peace and unity embodied the aspirations of israelis and palestinians alike. peace is possible because we have courageous leaders who have already taken significant political risks for peace. the time is approaching when they will have to take even more. they have shown real courage, both president abbas and prime minister netanyahu. president abbas has made tough choices. he has stayed the course, despite people in his team saying you ought to get out of here, look at those settlements, they are making a fool of you. believe m

technology stocks. what say you? >> absolutely. the last time i was talking to you, stuart, i was bullish on technology and i'm more bullish than i was two weeks ago. you've got to be in technology, the road in america is paved with high-tech. i definitely would be in technology in 2014. stuart: that's what i've seen and looking at holiday shopping, it seems to me that people are buying technology. the apple stores are jam-packed full. the toy stores are not. we're buying this stuff, aren't we? >> we absolutely are. it's funny, the day before thanksgiving, afternoon before thanksgiving i was at the local apple store in emeryville. the place was packed, buying everything, accessories, ipads, iphones and i think it's going to be a big christmas for apple, but the android universe as well. the new car sales are booming and cars are big consumers of technology, infotainment systems. and on that night, i just noticed that 27 billion dollars worth of computer chips were sold in october. up 7%. and a lot of them, as you say, are going right into new cars, that's interesting stuff. michael, stay
and derailed in bridgeport, connecticut. some experts argue that the technology exists and could help prevent deadly accidents like sunday's derailment. jake ward joins us from san francisco with that. jake, what sort of technology are we talking about? >> john, it's called a positive control system. positive train control is where the ntsb i has been pushing for0 years. the combination of gps sensors, sensors in the tracks, control sensors and remote control in the trains to compensate when a driver has been disabled, incapacitated or not paying attention. >> is there any difference between passenger trains and freight trains and the technology that they have? >> well, the difference really has to do with just how incredibly dangerous a train can be depending on what it's carrying. we've seen in new york the dangerous situation where trains are full the people. but even trains without people on board canner dangerous. in 2005 in south carolina, there was a terrible crash in which a tanker full of chlorine basically atomized in the air and a cloud of this poisonous gas caused the evacuation o
and while the march of technology continuously enhances our ability to handle data, the advances that have helped failures lead to new challenges today which is part of what i will talk about where the intelligence community was previously limited by his technical ability to manage a relatively small volume of affirmation, is now challenged by its collective ability to filter, analyze, said the size, and share relevant intelligence from a vast universe of information. today with all of the data and reports at our fingertips it is critical that we pull together right information in the right way at the right time, and that is a tough thing to do, believe me. require steady discipline, which is exactly what the institute of world politics i believe is about. for the many students in here, many of whom are part of our military force, i know the army has a great here, and an area of the special operations forces officers here in the past. you do not realize it until you leave, the investment that our department is putting in you and really in some cases you don't even know it until a couple of

in the name of security? and i think not. technology's great. it's supposed to make our lives better and simpler, more efficient, more effective. it's fun, it's innovative and it's leading the world. but at the same time, we got to make sure that these technologies are not overused, not only by our federal government officials and law enforcement, but also by others who would do us harm, who have sarpetishesly maybe converted that technology to do something a libble more pervasive and a little -- little bit more pervasive and a little bit more perverse. it is for that reason that senator wyden, my colleague in the united states senate, and i have introduced what's called geolocational, or g.p.s. act, to curtail those that want to follow us without our own knowledge. we believe that you should have to have a probable cause warrant in order to track somebody's geolocation. i want that for my own kids, i want that for me. i want to make sure that technology is safe and secure, so i encourage my colleagues, mr. speaker, to look at h.r. 1312, the g.p.s. act, let's deal with these new inve

, information technology outfits are increasingly going a la carte, something we saw with dream force, a celebration of everything that ibm is not. accused ibm as being irrelevant and not offering companies anything close to a bargain. heavy hardware, big iron, no thank you. meantime, ibm spends much of its free cash flow buying back stock. it's a giant cyclical company without any real growth at all. i have to tell you if warren buffett weren't in this stock, it would probably be dramatically lower. ibm's revenues have basically been flat for four years. and all that has really happened in that time is the company has shrunk its share account from $1.28 billion to $.89 billion. i see little reason to own this stock without an acquisition. and the more it goes into the cloud, the worse it can be for the whole company's margin. as for the other outright loser, caterpillar, it's all about management. boy, their equipment is the best in the world. the $7.6 billion equation of bucyrus, and then the purchase of the chinese mining company era for $650 million where cat almost immediately ha

districts that don't have the right technology to deliver that testing as well as they could. that's one of the reasons that we stepped forward just in the last couple of weeks and announced 24 million dollars additional for technology upgrades in school systems touching about 111 school districts in the state of connecticut. at the same time that we recognized that those school systems are making some of their own investments as well. but we want to support it. another thing that we've done p this the state of connecticut, for the first time we're actually budgeting continuing -- state dollars for continuing education. as we urge people to change their aroach to continuing education -- approach to continuing education from a kind of large auditorium, you know, you close the school for a day, you headache everybody hear the same lecture and precious little chance for real discussion between teachers and those that are leading the discussion. we're trying to change that model as well to be supportive of the kind of broader and larger change that we want to see made in the school systems a
this technology, you have a set of rules, look, i'm going to look at 2 rules there. nobody's done that before? that's not my problem. you're going to screw a lot of things up. we're going upset some people. what i suggest is that people should look for targets of opportunity. there are a lot of institutions and places that are fascinating. if you were to come out and look and say i'm going to do that, you could get an audience. for a million people sitting and waiting for the health care decision. we have to thank cnn and fox for contributing to the reputation that the blog develops. we have to thank the press in many different ways. but it's an extraordinary statement about how it is there's a hunger for information out there. how there are a series of institutions that their goal is not to make themselves more accessible. the supreme court is ironic because they're the most open. you know all the cases they're going to hear. you see the results in their opinions. unlike the presidency, unlike congress in any way. so at the same time it does little to explain itself to the public. it leaves

for republicans. caller: i just wanted to ask why can't we, with our technological abilities now, draw down a lot of manpower and keep -- because we have many nations in the world with armies that can provide military support for the united states, for advancing democracy and freedom. i don't see why we all have to go broke to support all these other countries and their defense when there are many other nations with militaries just like ours. guest: i think daniel makes a couple of interesting points there. one of the issues diplomatically we are having is a lot of our allies are trying to cut their own defense budgets for obvious reasons, and that is a concern of the pentagon. the other point is the fact that we have so much more technology these days. i talked to several people that suggested to me that, yes, the cost per person has gone up a lot, but that makes sense considering these are not the sort of ground-pounding trigger pullers we may have had in the army 30, 40 years ago. the people in the service these days are much more highly educated and well trained. they are dealing with complex
lives. >> i want to turn to an issue that's big right now in the realm of technology. obviously you are a pioneer in this field. last night, amazon's ceo jeff bezos announced that his company amazon is working on a drone delivery system. he calls it octocopter i think and he says it will be delivering books to your doorstep in a relatively short period of time. let's listen to what he said. >> could it be, you know, four, five years, i think so. it will work and it will happen, and it's going to be a lot of fun. >> five years until it drops off the book you ordered. is that realistic? >> well, books of course are going electronic and jeff, through amazon, has been one of the leaders on that. something like books, you can get literally at the speed of light. physical products delivered by drone, i would say he's probably on the optimistic or perhaps overoptimistic end of that. it's great that people have dreams like that. if we can make the cost of delivery easier, then it's not just books, it's getting supplies out to people in tough places. drones overall will be more impactful tha
's technology available that clearly, apparently, from what you read and hear that would have slowed that train automatically prior to reaching the bend and it's been available for a couple of years. it hasn't been installed because of delays, delays and delays. and the city asked to delay a requirement, to push it off for two years. so we're going to have this technology in 2015, but they didn't want to pay for it now. >> look at us. meanwhile one other sort of side note to the story. out going mayor michael bloomberg has faced questions over his handling of the incident. the "wall street journal report"ing he was golfing in bermuda at the time of the crash and didn't leave the course until at least 1:00 p.m. local time. yesterday he visited victims in the hospital and said he was briefed for about 30 minutes right after the accident. the "new york daily news" quotes the mayor as saying what can i do, i'm not a professional firefighter or police officer. nothing i can do. all i can do is make sure that the right people from new york city, our police commissioner, our fire commissioner and emer
